A Message for Russia and the Sochi Winter Olympics.

Let’s unite the world

under the greatest nation: Earth,

join hands and celebrate

the nature of our games.

“…But not you. We will harass

and bludgeon you for breathing.

Don’t think you’re free,

you’re a stain on our profile

and we’re the bleach.”

Move your fingers, they’re grimy.

Get used to that feeling Sochi,

evil doesn’t wash out easily

and your overcoat is trailing in our blood.

‘Hot. Cool. Yours.’ You said these were

“our” games, but you’re the family-cheater.

We play fair whilst you load your dice

like a bullet in a gun.

Run for your lives, they’re shooting.

Let’s unite the world

under the greatest nation: Earth,

Why don’t you celebrate

and hear the screams of your LGBT youth?

-Alex W.
